The makers of Taybeh beer and the Taybeh municipality hosted the Oktoberfest last Saturday and Sunday. Thousands of liters of Palestinian beers were sold at the festival.

Organizers said they do not have a problem with their Muslim neighbors over the large distribution of alcohol, but rather invite Muslims to try their non alcoholic beer.
